Actor Erik Estrada stars in an upcoming film for Liberty Counsel, a Christian conservative legal group opposed to gay rights.

In Uncommon, the 64-year-old Estrada portrays a principled janitor who helps a group of public high school students put on a religious-themed production. School administrators tell the students they cannot discuss their religious beliefs during school hours.

"Fighting overwhelming challenges, the teens fight against political correctness to defend their privilege to worship, meet and perform," a description of the film on states. "Will months of constant bullying by the establishment defeat the production and dismantle their faith?"

A trailer for the film shows Liberty Counsel head Mat Staver defending the student's rights in court.

In October, Staver accused New Jersey Governor Chris Christie of "dereliction of duty" for withdrawing an appeal to a court's decision legalizing gay marriage in the state.
